Human VS. Truck

Nothing to the left...nothing to the right...the only vehicle on the street, and this poor little kid (around 12)ran his bike into our truck. It wasn't a little "Oops, I'm sorry" type of collison, it was a "Oh my gosh, what just hit the truck!" kind of encounter. Chuck was out front and I was walking out the door when we saw this kid come out of the driveway. He turned his head to see if his sister was following....and WHAM...right into the truck. It literally sounded like something had been thrown at the truck. The impact threw the little guy to the middle of the street where he was in the process of getting up by the time I got there. He was holding his elbow, but luckily it was just minus some skin (not bone). I made sure he was alright and I could tell his pride was hurt probably more than his body. He took off like a flash w/his sister. We surveyed the damage to the truck and it now has purple paint on the back and a 4 inch gash of white where red paint used to be. Interesting that we haven't seen him since. His dad is going to get some red paint to go over the truck because he has no money/insurance. Could have been worse! Gotta love vacations!
